They don't make money for their services but a great many. (I do not know about Birthright) get a ton of money directly from adoption agencies that stand to make about $40,000 for a single relinquishment.

Quoting isaiahbellamom:

What about all the women lied too about their abortion? Because abortion is a profitable business makes 500 dollars an abortion. Of course they sale abortion why wouldn't they? Pro life centers make no money what so ever for services. We could go back and forth all day. There will always be someone who disagrees with what there opposing view does.


Quoting jojo_star:

Yes, but the majority of Birth rights are like that, I know, I've dealt with many women who went there. Yes, some had a good result. Most did not, because they don't do anything for the women past the point of getting a legal abortion. No, not all abortion clinics are legit, but the majority are. I've never run into a single birth right or other pregnancy resource center that wasn't all about adoption, very, very anti-abortion and cruel about it, and stopped caring or helping as soon as the fetus was safe. 

Quoting isaiahbellamom:

Um ok as all abortion clinics are not legit. There are bad apples in everything. I can only speak for what I have done and seen. In 2 different states.





Quoting jojo_star:

I've been to Birthright as a client. I know what they do. It's great that your office is so good, but most are not, and that is based off my personal experience (and no, I received no compassion when I decided to abort, and was treated awfully), and also that of some friends I've made through the years, who were sucked in by Birth rights biggest lie: Options. 

Quoting isaiahbellamom:

Lol see I try to be logical and think hey maybe even though I don't agree with abortion this could help women.





actually I am a former client and volunteer of birthright. I nor anyone I've worked with has lied to women showed graphic pictures or were rude or mean. I have seem women buy groceries pay rent etc. I've seen compassion even when they choose to abort.





I myself have brought groceries and even babysit for a escort so she could get a legit job. One of my good friends is a woman I counseled 3 years ago. To this day we are still great friends. I threw her baby shower and was with her when she decided to have her son.








I have seen women give these women respect and ultimley no one can choose for anyone.





so you can listen to those who obviously are biased or someone who has witnessed what Birthright does.

Making a sale? Yes, that is why the nurse called me several times afterwards to check up on me. Why I am still in contact with the counselor who helped me. Why they gave me information on adoption and government assistance to make sure I knew what choice I was making. I've worked with people who are in it just for the money. They were not. 

Quoting isaiahbellamom:

Its called making a sale of course they are nice you are paying their salary. You think they do it because its awesome job. It a money making business.


Quoting jojo_star:

I didn't give them any money, my mom did. However, they helped, respected me, and educated me before they got a single penny. I went there several times, and the only time they got money was the last time, when I actually had the abortion. Who is winning? Women, who have such a wonderful resource like planned parenthood to turn to where they truly do have options and will be educated rather than lied to.

Quoting isaiahbellamom:

Yes planned parenthood helped you once you give them hundred of dollars. Lol because they had all the great attentions in the world because you had the money. Money money money. A 10 min procedure with no aftercare cost about 500 dollars so who is winning here?





Quoting jojo_star:

Yup, that is how I got sucked into going to a Birth right, because their window had a big sticker that said Pregnancy options. I already knew I wanted an abortion, and first, they ignored me when I said that and just told me how I'll get breast cancer, I will regret it, I'll never be able to have children, the embryo will scream in pain. All blatant and fairly obvious lies, but then, I had a bit of medical knowledge. When I made it clear I wanted to abort, they turned nasty and vicious and called me names. Planned parenthood saved my life. They were amazing, caring, honest, and I had my abortion without a single person who worked there calling me stupid or telling me I was a murderer who did not deserve children ( I already had a 3 year old.)

Quoting Glitchtastic:

I have no idea the name of the places I called. I called a few of them and they all led me with the "options line." What they really meant was anything BUT an abortion. I didn't need those options. I knew what I had to do and being made to feel stupid about you decision sucks. Thank the stars for Planned Parenthood.

Nope not birthright. I've had a mom beg me to talk her daughter into adoption. I told her we don't do that. They don't even work with adoption agencies .

Resources are resources and maybe Birthright has helped women out that are in a touch position. Kudos. Seriously. 

However this is about women who have already decided to have an abortion and need help. 

Thanks for the input anyway.

I didn't really have any support when I had mine. My family was on the other side of the country and let's just say that the whole experience led to the demise of my first marriage. I still don't really know anyone in real life that has had one. But I know from my own experience that everyone in the women's clinic that performed mine we're very kind and made sure I understood exactly what I was doing and how the procedure was going to be done. They cared more about me than my XDH did...


Quoting jojo_star:

Lied to about their abortion? Unless it's an illegal clinic, they aren't lying. Just because they use actual facts and explain what an abortion is in medical, factual terms does not mean they are lying. I've never met a single woman who was lied to about what an abortion was. The only lies regarding abortion I heard were told to me when I went to Birthright. Pro-life centers often have contracts with adoption agencies, so it is in their interest to procure babies. I don't care what your view point is, I care that you are passing off an organization that does not care about women, but just cares about getting all babies born and spreads lies left and right as a legitimate resource.

Idk about birthright, but there ARE proliferation resources out there that provide women with alternatives to abortion, as well as reproductive healthcare. The medical info is accurate too. One is called birth choice health clinics.

Where I live medicaid covers an abortion and they cover transportation to and from all medical appointments. Only thing you'd need would be a babysitter.

When I was pregnant with my oldest pp counseled me and they only mentioned abortion one tume and that's when they were telling me my options. As soon as I said no they dropped it and gave me tons of info on pregnancy and a bunch of referrals. They called and checked on me after I gave birth.

I'm sure there are some out there that are honest and help women, but none of the ones that I have had to deal with, and in my job and volunteer work I've had the misfortune of dealing with several ones, along with personal experience and that of friends, and I'd just always rather to go PP and I recommend PP to everyone that needs help, because I know they will get honest information about every option.
